Christmas in July Block-a-thon Quilt Complete

Yeah!  I’m so excited to report that I have finished another amazing quilt!  I’ll admit – this is probably going to be the last decent sized quilt I’ll have to share with you all for awhile but don’t worry it definitely won’t be the last.  I have a few in the works right now just no time to get very far with them.

This quilt has been ‘in the works’ since about March when I asked to be one of the block designers for the quilt.  I was so excited when they said ‘yes’!  The actual quilt along started at the beginning of July.  I put my last stitch in the binding sometime last week so this quilt was only about a 3 month project.  I would say that’s a pretty quick turn around for a quilt along.

Christmas In July Block-A-Thon And here it is!  I’m so loving how the grey/white/black ‘back ground’ fabrics create such a cool combination with the A Stitch in Color by Malka Dubrawsky for Moda fabric line that I chose as my prints.  I also have to say that I LOVE the ‘cheater’ patchwork fabric print that makes it look like I worked a lot harder on my borders than I did!Christmas In July Block-A-Thon Here’s just one close up picture of the amazing design quilting that Barb Raisbeck of Quilts by Barb did on this quilt.  I am so so so in love with the pattern she chose and the heavier florescent orange thread couldn’t go any better!  Perfect choices by Barb and extremely well made!  LOVE it!Christmas In July Block-A-Thon

And I had to show off just one more picture of the overall quilt.  I have been making too many quilts that aren’t for sale yet – I really should probably put this one up.
I would love your opinion on a name for this quilt!

I don’t think ‘Christmas in July – Block-a-thon’ quite fits it…

If you’re sad that you missed this amazing quilt along – no worries!  Free Spirit has put together a ‘Flip Book’ so you can easily see all the blocks and how to make them!  I definitely need to do some ‘Flip Book’ research so I can make one up for the ‘Home Sweet Home’ Quilt Along. …

Check out this Flickr Gallery to see all the other quilts finished as the result of this quilt along – I love seeing how different everyone’s turned out!


  1. I'm terrible at names but I will say that it is positively lovely!

  2. Me too! They're very frustrating at times! Thanks so much for your compliment on my quilt :) It was a fun one to put together!
